BANGALORE, India--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cinema Screen technology pioneer Harkness Screens™ installed a premium Clarus XC Screen at the Megabox Hanam auditorium in the recently opened Starfield Hanam shopping centre in South Korea. The Clarus XC screen measuring 22 x 11.8 meters has been installed along with a flagship Barco DP4K-60L projector for exceptional cinema presentation. The auditorium with a seating capacity of approximately 400 seats opened to a screening of the blockbuster Korean film ‘The Age of Shadows.’
The Clarus XC silver screen by Harkness Screens uses 4th generation screen technology to provide a wide viewing angle, greater uniformity of light, improved colour, and contrast in both 2D and polarised 3D formats. The technology incorporated in the manufacturing of the screen ensures there are no visible seams resulting in a smoother surface finish and deeper visual presentation for 3D content.
“Megabox happens to be a very strong ally of Harkness Screens in South Korea. As a screen technology company, we believe that our audiences across the world deserve the best cinema presentation in the given environment. The Clarus by Harkness is one of Harkness’ bestselling screens due to its uniformity and its viewing experience for not only 3D but also 2D content. Complemented with a flagship RGB laser projector by Barco, viewers at Megabox Hanam are sure to walk in for a cinema presentation of the highest quality,” said Preetham Daniel, Senior Vice President – Asia, Harkness Screens.
